A Pink Princess Girly Card

24 09 2008

This pretty princess card is the perfect fix for frugal royalty since it’s put together with forgotten materials and imitation bling. The whole card was inspired by a friend’s swap on the theme “Enchanted” and a roll of princess ribbon from Michaels that I bought last year to add to Bean’s tutu (but never actually used it). I brushed the pink cardstock with the brillance ink to make it shimmer like the Bazzill paper. A star punch helped create the mask for the background. The fairy dust is courtesy of a ranger pen and a marvey silver gel pen. The illusion of brads is made by first gluing hole punches to the paper, then stamping with a pencil eraser dipped in Brilliance ink and embossing. I don’t know where the cheesy plastic stars came from, but they are perfect for this card. I would have embellished it even more with glitter, but I’ve put the glitter away for safekeeping from Bean, and can’t seem to find it again.

I discovered this neat blog by a crafty mom today called Nessy’s Notes. I’m posting this card as a tribute to her on her birthday. Wishing you another great year! You should visit her too, wish her a happy birthday, and eye her beautiful blog candy…
